Thai Pineapple Fried Rice with Cosori Air Fryers

This fried rice is quite popular in Thai restaurants. The mix of sweet pineapple and savory cashews is irresistible. I like to make mine with leftover or day-old rice. That extra time in the refrigerator allows for the rice to dry out a bit, and the firmer texture makes it ideal for making fried rice. When paired with Thai-Style Vegetable Curry, it is hard to stick with a single serving.


  • 1 tablespoon corn oil
  • 3 tablespoons cashews
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped scallions white parts only
  • 2 green Thai chiles finely chopped
  • 1 cup canned pineapple chunks
  • 4 tbsp fresh basil leaves roughly chopped, divided
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup steamed short-grain white rice preferably a day old
  • 1 1/4 cups Water


  1. Sauté the vegetables and pineapple. Select Sauté,, and pour in the oil. Once hot, add the cashews and stir for 1 minute. Add the onion, scallions, and chiles, and Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Mix in the pineapple, 2 tablespoons of basil, and the curry powder, turmeric, soy sauce, and salt. Add the rice and water, and mix again.
  2. Pressure cook the rice. Lock the lid into place. Select Pressure Cook or Manual, and adjust the pressure to High and the time to 3 minutes. Make sure the steam release knob is in the Sealed position. After cooking, naturally release the pressure for 3 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure. Unlock and remove the lid. Let the rice cool for 15 minutes. Using a fork, fluff the rice. Serve hot
